Flood warning in effect for Barbados


BRIDGETOWN, Barbados, Jul 01 2017 – The axis of a tropical wave, currently moving across the Lesser Antilles has been generating cloudy to overcast skies, moderate to heavy showers, periods of rain and isolated thunderstorms across Barbados during the last few hours.

The Barbados Meteorological Services said some flash flooding is already occurring due to the saturated nature of the soils from rains experienced earlier this week. A further deterioration in conditions is expected during the course of the afternoon and into tonight; rainfall accumulations of at least 50 to 75 mm {2 to 3 inches} are possible.

As a result, a flood warning has been issued and will remain in effect initially until 6 p.m. today. Residents in flood prone areas should exercise caution and remain on the alert.

A Flood Warning means that flooding is imminent or is already occurring.

This Warning may be extended if necessary.
